August 18, 2005, (New York, NY) - This 2,200 square foot three-bedroom, three-bath features sweeping ceilings and a layout that favors art like the modern rococo theme by its current owners. The designer couple’s collection of vibrant artwork, rugs and furniture are an intoxicating blend of cultures at home in the historical Police Building.
Apartment 3G’s deep brown lacquered floors and crisp white walls are an apt backdrop for the rich Moroccan-style rugs and dishes. Saffron, dusty green, and Moroccan printed pillows are playfully contrasted with bright prints and children’s paintings. Well-lit and spotlessly clean, its bathrooms are perfect for families with children. The couple’s choice furniture pieces include a U-shaped Savaranola- tyle chair. The Savonarola chair was named after the Dominican monk, Girolamo Savonarola (1452-1498) who once ruled Florence, Italy. Originally made for the wealthy nobility of Italy, Savonarola chairs were later modified in England where its X-like base allowed it to be folded and moved.
The Police Building’s 55 unit conversion, designed by Ehrenkrantz Group & is noted as one of the nation's finest examples of the re-use of historical properties.
The building features 24-hour concierge service, doorman, live-in super, gymnasium, picturesque courtyard with fountain, and a magnificent beaux art marble lobby from 1902. This is a dramatic corner duplex loft with south/west exposure, sun-drenched 3 bedroom, 3 bath and boasts of 18-foot ceilings, 12-foot windows, Euro style kitchen, washer/dryer room and extra loggia space.
